One of the items in the TortoiseSVN 1.5.1 changelog was to compile
SASL DigestMD5 with support for encryption. So you would need
TortoiseSVN 1.5.1 and your server binaries will also need this
support. I can say that the CollabNet Windows binaries do NOT have
this support compiled in either. We are looking into it.
